When you are the mom of a newborn and are in the midst of diapers, sleepless nights and baby puke, it is so hard to imagine anything quite as miserable as your current experience.  I think today though I felt something much worse.  You see, I sat in my pew at church watching my now 12 year old baby Benjamin pass the sacrament for the first time completely flabbergasted at how fast the time has gone.  I then glanced over to a young man who is leaving for his mission soon and had the wind knocked out of me realizing how little time I have left before Benjamin will be a missionary as well.

Banana Crumb Muffins

I know I sound like an old lady when I say this, but to all young moms out there that are completely overwhelmed with their tasks, take just one small moment today and love, snuggle, kiss and smooch that baby all over before they are “too big and too cool” for such attention from their Mom.  I have to tackle and pin down my 12 year old baby on the couch to get in that kind of love anymore, but that’s why I work out right?

These muffins weren’t a hit with the above mentioned Benjamin, but everyone else thought they were a tasty treat for breakfast.  I will probably add one more banana next time to increase the intensity of the banana flavor.
